So I want to provide similar redirection logic as we have on drupal.org and redirection to dashboard to logged in users but also allow access to the /front page. I can't seem to get it to redirect ONLY on front page. Here is the current code I have:

function MYMODULE_init(){
  global $user;
  if(drupal_is_front_page() && user_access('view own dashboard')){

It is also redirecting the page itself to the dashboard still and not simply the <root>


I think you should be using hook_user_login instead of hook_init.

  • Yes, I have other code that handles the initial login redirection. That's not an issue. What I mean is that I need a front page redirect from just the root; not the page itself. – markwk Oct 4 '12 at 19:40
  • can you please define root ?? by giving path example like www.example.com is frontpage www.example.com/dashoard is the dashboard. – junedkazi Oct 4 '12 at 19:52
  • So if you set the front page to /frontpage then www.example.com and www.example.com equal "front" and get redirected. I define root as www.example.com. drupal_is_front_page seems to not distinguish between front as root and page that is defined as frontpage. – markwk Oct 5 '12 at 14:25
